While the concept of sexting has officially been around since 2007, more recently, after several “scandals” – both nationwide and local, sexting and media usage became a concern for youth, parents and schools. This webinar focuses on how to turn our reactive stances on media usage into a Positive Youth Development, risk reduction, and strengths-based approach to positively address a young person’s sexual health. This webinar will discuss the concerns, consequences, laws, and possible solutions to the sexual media usage among the youth in our lives. We will focus on how to create systems that support underage victims and prevent perpetration so that we move past scandal into opportunity.
